Blue Ridge Naturally™'s mission is to raise the awareness of the superiority of botanical raw materials and quality natural products (personal care, pet care, cleaning, tinctures and supplements, functional food and beverages) from the Blue Ridge Mountains region of North Carolina.
Carrying the Blue Ridge Naturally™ seal on products tells customers that the ingredients have been reviewed, are traceable, safely made or grown, and tested, if necessary. Wildcrafted raw ingredients are sustainably sourced from southern Appalachia and cultivated raw ingredients are grown in Western North Carolina whenever possible.
The aim of Blue Ridge Naturally™ is to support local companies crafting high quality natural products and develop the WNC natural products industry.
Here's a sampling of retailers where you can find Blue Ridge Naturally certified products.
